Summer Reading Suggestions

Tulsa, Oklahoma – Summertime doesn't officially arrive until June 21st, but we're still very glad to welcome our old friend Nancy Pearl back to the program. Now based in the Seattle area and formerly a citizen of Tulsa, Nancy is a retired librarian, bestselling author, and longtime bibliophile who's been chatting with us (every now again) about worthwhile books for many years now. This time, she's got a list of Can't Miss Summer Reading Recommendations. Here are all the titles that she described to our host Rich Fisher:

Frank Baker. "Miss Hargreaves" (Bloomsbury USA)
